However, the judge sentencing Naresh Chopra after seeing the headbutts on CCTV said they were "hardly a Glasgow kiss" and told the "industrious" defendant he would not be going to prison.

Chopra's lavish wedding at Wolverhampton's Park Hall Hotel, which is currently being used as a Nightingale Court, was in March 2019.

After spotting two men, who had been invited by a friend, taking photos from the gallery Chopra marched up to them where he headbutted one but missed another.

Shortly afterwards Chopra and others followed them to the car park where there was a melee in which the men were injured.

However, Chopra denied he was involved in that fight and pleaded guilty to affray on the first day of a proposed trial.
